Seals for forestry sector

Everyone who is outside in all winds and weather and has to work perfectly day after day needs to be protected well from weather influences.

Thus air-conditioned cabins become more and more important. By means of our EPDM-compounds we are able to fulfil these requirements concerning excellent ozone-, weather- and temperature-resistance in all ways. At the same time the high grade electronical devices inside the cabin are protected reliable concerning environmental influences such as dust, moisture or changes of temperature.

Higher requirements of the users require a wide range of possibilities concerning the development.

Regarding your specific application we are ideally positioned: 

Our experienced team of product developers in combination with our possibilities regarding simulation together with our extensive possibilities concerning reinforcing supports, adhesives and sealing compounds or surface treatment systems is the basis to find also for your application an ideal solution. 

A coextrusion combining a soft sponge rubber area (sealing area) and a hard dense rubber area (fitting area) to achieve the best possible sealing solution is state of the art for us. 

A surface refinement by means of our high grade and permanent slip-coating systems lead to a reduction of friction and freeze protection. 

As reinforced materials we are using

  • punch strips
  • stamped metal strips
  • wire reinforced strips

delivered in a flat performance by certified suppliers.  

Before we are able to use the reinforced materials for the extrusion we have to shape it to an U-form by means of special bending tools regarding the required dimension and shape. 

To keep the tooling costs as low as possible we check already during the calculation process id we can use an already existing bending unit or a similar bending unit. 

High grade EPDM-profiles enable a flexible application even in cases of high temperature variations  (-35° to + 120° C.).

If required our profiles can be coated online also with flock.

Furthermore an assembly regarding frames or lengths including cut-outs or drilled holes is possible.
